Country skillet potpie (vegan-style) for a hearty meal on Meatless Monday

No one's saying you have to go meatless just because it's Monday -- but as incentive to join the growing movement, every week we're offering an animal-free recipe.

With the chilly weather this past weekend we decided to skip salad, and instead grabbed some fresh fingerling potatoes and yellow baby carrots and made a potpie in a cast-iron skillet, and topped with biscuits. It was perfect for chasing those last remnants of winter away. We used the gravy from the green bean casserole and the biscuits from our earlier biscuits and gravy recipe, so this dish should be somewhat familiar territory.
